Metaphrog Hans Christian Andersen’s The Red Shoes and Other Tales, GRAPHIC STORIES. Papercutz, 2014 Language: (0 swears, 0 “f”); Mature Content-PG; Violence: PG-13;
I had never read the classic story of the Red Shoes by Hans Christian Andersen. I started out sweet, simple and yet tragic. Then is got a little disturbing. I looked up the original text and it’s been altered. This is a graphic novel version. It’s about a girl who loves to dance and is given a pair of magical red shoes. It also includes a story called The Glass Case and The Little Match Girl. I enjoyed the illustrations. They are all in black and white except the main character.
